Welcome Center Parking Garage Re-Configuration

The Welcome Center Garage will soon be re-configured in order to increase efficiency and generally improve the parking experiences for those utilizing the garage.

“With the equipment re-configuration, PTS will be able to offer its customers a garage that is more efficient and safer to use,” says Robert Browand, Director of UH Parking and Transportation Services.

At street level, the gates outside the garage will be removed and located within the garage. This has several advantages. Firstly, it will be easier to enter the garage from the street without worrying about the equipment. Secondly, it will alleviate delays on the street from vehicles waiting to enter. And thirdly, it will reduce vehicle/pedestrian conflicts from the gates interrupting the sidewalk.

Another significant change will involve the first floor being reserved for faculty and staff only. Gates will be installed on the first floor, and faculty/staff will enter the garage from UH Entrance 4, and exit via Calhoun Street.

The second floor will be reserved for visitors only. The ticket dispensers, gates, and ticket validators will be relocated to the second floor.

On the third floor, a second exit lane will also be added to the student gates.

Work for Phase I of this project began the week of July 5th. The entire project is scheduled to be finished within six weeks. UH Entrance 4 entry/exit was blocked, and all vehicles were required to enter and exit from Calhoun Street.

Also, starting on the 6th, the first and second floors of the garage were closed and all vehicles are currently required to proceed to the third floor, where the gates will remain open for parking.
